His control over the Senate rests on a single vote; even if Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota recovers enough to return to the Senate, the loss of one member of Reid’s caucus will allow Dick Cheney to cast the deciding vote on control of the upper chamber. While this isn’t news, an article posted yesterday by the New Yorker reveals that the debate on Iraq may push the Senate’s only independent to rethink his loyalty.

Read the whole thing; there’s too much in the New Yorker excerpt and Ed’s trenchant analysis to quote here.
